Requirements For Eligibility
AAPG members must be invited by three Trustee Associates and make a $10,000 contribution to the AAPG Foundation in order to be eligible to become a Trustee Associate. This contribution may be given over a 5-year period and is tax-deductible to U.S. taxpayers, since the AAPG Foundation is a qualified 501(c)(3) public foundation under IRS tax code.
Contributions may be made in several forms. Consider the method which gives you the greatest tax benefits, as provided under U.S. tax law.
- Gifts of cash or stock
- Naming AAPG in your will or trust
- Gifts of oil, gas, or mineral interests
